  1. I dunno, some juicy drama, or anything else interesting to an old veteran like myself.

  2. Well, I'm old as shit. Decided to treat myself to a bolt-action .30-06, was looking at a Birmingham Small Arms sporterized Mauser, it was $300 last time I had went but was now $375. Next to it was a rifle that had almost the exact same lay-out (21" barrel, iron sights on the barrel), but the sights were better and it had a scope. Apparently the scope and ring combination is worth $200, so after paying $351 after tax for the whole shebang, turns out I got a great deal. The scope is a Weaver El Paso K4 fixed telescope (not variable) and it has a pivoting mount so I can drop the scope out of the way to use the iron sights. Perfect deer and bear rifle. It is a Savage Model 110, made in the US, made in Chicopee Falls, MA.

    Side 1

    Side 2

    Scope pivoted

    Scope locked in

    If my research is correct, this is possibly from the first year of production and may actually be the 5656th of this rifle ever made.

      Nice, I like my Savage 110 .270. Need to get out and shoot the damn thing more though.


      If you go to a public range and see dudes shooting .30-06s, save their brass, you can reload it into .270 cartridges.

  3. I've been doing a lot of late night driving these days and I nod off every time I do this one particular one and a half hour drive. One thing I've never been sure of is how long I nod off for. I usually wake up with the car still in its lane right after I've nodded off. Well last night I was delightfully surprised when I woke up to see that I was already at the sign that reads: "1 mile to exit 2". The last thing I remember before that is that I was about 10 miles from my exit. I've done this particular drive so many times that I suppose it wasn't much different than sleep walking around one's house. It was kinda like being a passenger... 'wake me up when we get there'. It was nice that I didn't have to do part of the drive.

      I love how you describe extremely dangerous and idiotic behavior to a bunch of strangers and then act perplexed when they say "hey, this is extremely dangerous and idiotic behavior."

      Then, to top it off, after talking about how shitty and dangerous of a driver you are, you go on a diatrabe about how good of a driver you are. Holy fuck.

      What the fuck is it going to take for you to realize your careless attitude can result in the permanent destruction of a life in one form or another (either through crippling or absolute loss of life)? What if you hit a family with a baby and little kids and they all fucking die in a fire, you hear their terrified screams as they burn, because you're a totally awesome sleepdriver.

      Alternatively, what if while sleepdriving you come across an equally shitty driver who is sniffing cocaine off the back of his iPad and he swerves into your lane? Now the people of your state have to pay a bunch of dudes to get traumatized by pulling your face out of your steering wheel and his iPad from his nasal cavity.

      Seriously, it's not that hard to pull the fuck over, you don't need to get home to your TV that badly.

    I met this crazy asshole on an IRC channel. One day he admitted to me that he had an illegally sawed-off shotgun and an illegally possessed handgun (he lives in New York, like me, and New York requires a permit to possess handguns). Another user of the channel pointed me to his public profile on the website the channel is dedicated to. On his profile was longitude and lattitude coordinates to his house (seriously? seriously.) and pictures of said illegal guns. Little did I know that the CETME .308 caliber rifle pictured next to his illegal handgun was in fact a fully-automatic machinegun and not a semi-automatic rifle.

    I promptly LOL'd about his stupidity and proceeded to paste his public profile in several channels and one person, who was a member of both channels, took notice and LOL'd along with me. During this time, we noted several very disturbing comments and an attitude that suggested that he and his father believed national chaos was imminent and that if it came about that he was going to be free of moral scruples. This was the impetus for us to report him to New York state authorities. We compiled as much evidence (IRC logs, URL of pictures he removed from the HTML of his profile but did not actually delete them from the image host, and his IP / hostmask) and he reported the guy to New York's crime tip line.

    As they say, the wheels of justice grind slow, but they grind fine, and as the weeks rolled into months, we wondered if the cops had forgotten about it or something, but then today he got an e-mail (the cops periodically e-mailed back and once called him) saying that they had executed a search warrant at the address provided and had recovered machineguns, sawed-off shotguns (the one he had shown us was clearly visible in the police evidence photos that the news article I read) and pistols. Turns out his father had used a Federal Curio and Relics collector license, which allows you to have elligible firearms shipped directly to your home, to transfer the pistols. However, to do so legally in New York with handguns, you must have a handgun permit, which neither of them had. The machineguns were built from lawfully-acquired parts kits, which are typically built by hobbyists into completely legal semi-automatic firearms (by law, the receivers must vary enough to not accept fully-automatic parts).

    I am very pro-gun, I do believe it should be legal to own fully-automatic firearms and it is legal in around 40 states to do so (NY not being one of them) but I also believe that ignoring unjust laws is not a moral way to protest them. It saddens me this young man has been arrested for violating laws that should not exist, particularly the law about "collapsible stocks" that New York has, but at the same time, I cannot pity him too much, he and his father knew full well that they were breaking various State and Federal laws and he was callous enough to make this public for ANYONE that Google searched his IRC nickname (first result, actually) to find.

    EDIT : technically they haven't found him or his father guilty, just charged him...but as far as cases go, they just don't get any more closed than that.

      What sort of person needs a shotgun with a nine inch barrel (rough guesstimate) and pistol grip - apart from a bank robber or a sociopath.


      How does having a shorter barrel and a "pistol grip" make it any more lethal or less lethal than one that looks more like a hunting shotgun?

      18" barrel, perfectly legal, but still pretty short

      Note that his barrel was 3" shorter than mine on his pump-action shotgun. That's about the length of a pinky finger.

      I'd have gotten a free sheep for thwarting the underclasses from uprising, I suppose.

      I do not see how being concerned for the safety of the public is despicable. It's not like I rolled in a drug dealer that ripped me off, I helped turn in a guy who possibly could have murdered people. It wasn't just me that felt this, after all.

      This is the FIRST and ONLY time I have ever done anything like this, and hopefully it will be the last. I don't give a shit what people do in the privacy of their own home or whatever, but when you make me and other people worried that you're a violent psychopath, yeah, I don't feel bad about having you removed from society.

      You know you've still got your contact information in your user profile, right? :P

      It strikes me as weird that the police takes anonymous tips seriously enough to grant them a full search warrant.

      Unless of course they used the tip just as a pretext to eventually set up the guy in the presence of sworn-in law operatives, e.g. after following your tip that "this guy X seems a bit out of a kilter", they eventually started watching him and goaded him to boast right in front of an agent.

      Which was probably what happened, as you mention that a period of months elapsed. If your anonymous tip however had been enough to warrant a violent police reponse within hours, then I'd really be worried you live in police/snitch state.


      We provided evidence in the form of pictures from his public profile and IRC logs. I presume they watched him dig up the shotgun, as he mentioned to me he buried it nearby and my contact (the guy actually talking to the cops) relayed that information. All they'd have to do is watch him go to a patch of woods, wait for him to leave, hit it up with a metal detector, find the shotgun and viola.

Another user of the channel pointed me to his public profile on the website the channel is dedicated to. On his profile was longitude and lattitude coordinates to his house (seriously? seriously.) and pictures of said illegal guns. Little did I know that the CETME .308 caliber rifle pictured next to his illegal handgun was in fact a fully-automatic machinegun and not a semi-automatic rifle.

    I promptly LOL'd about his stupidity and proceeded to paste his public profile in several channels and one person, who was a member of both channels, took notice and LOL'd along with me. During this time, we noted several very disturbing comments and an attitude that suggested that he and his father believed national chaos was imminent and that if it came about that he was going to be free of moral scruples. This was the impetus for us to report him to New York state authorities. We compiled as much evidence (IRC logs, URL of pictures he removed from the HTML of his profile but did not actually delete them from the image host, and his IP / hostmask) and he reported the guy to New York's crime tip line.

    As they say, the wheels of justice grind slow, but they grind fine, and as the weeks rolled into months, we wondered if the cops had forgotten about it or something, but then today he got an e-mail (the cops periodically e-mailed back and once called him) saying that they had executed a search warrant at the address provided and had recovered machineguns, sawed-off shotguns (the one he had shown us was clearly visible in the police evidence photos that the news article I read) and pistols. Turns out his father had used a Federal Curio and Relics collector license, which allows you to have elligible firearms shipped directly to your home, to transfer the pistols. However, to do so legally in New York with handguns, you must have a handgun permit, which neither of them had. The machineguns were built from lawfully-acquired parts kits, which are typically built by hobbyists into completely legal semi-automatic firearms (by law, the receivers must vary enough to not accept fully-automatic parts).

    I am very pro-gun, I do believe it should be legal to own fully-automatic firearms and it is legal in around 40 states to do so (NY not being one of them) but I also believe that ignoring unjust laws is not a moral way to protest them. It saddens me this young man has been arrested for violating laws that should not exist, particularly the law about "collapsible stocks" that New York has, but at the same time, I cannot pity him too much, he and his father knew full well that they were breaking various State and Federal laws and he was callous enough to make this public for ANYONE that Google searched his IRC nickname (first result, actually) to find.

    EDIT : technically they haven't found him or his father guilty, just charged him...but as far as cases go, they just don't get any more closed than that.

      Apparently the term I am looking for is "misprision of felony" and it is still a legal aspect in New York.

      No. There is no law that obligates any citizen to report a felony that they have uncovered; this is not England. Some states have made some statutes to force citizens into snitching, but what you have witness, from what I've seen, would not demand any action taken on your part. This gentleman sums it up quite well.

      Also, conspiracy?
      So when were you planning on going into cahoots with this man?


      It appears I used the wrong term, but yes, in New York, the state I reside, it is against the law to fail to report a felony. I was under the impression that doing so results in a charge of Conspiracy, as I was aware of the crime (therefore complicit) unless I took action to distance myself from the crime (reporting it).

      Thanks for correcting me, I will check into this and see where that law is.

      So you used what you describe as "an unjust law" to screw him over because he said some stuff you disagree with - that you thought was "crazy"


      Not disagreed with, he said things that basically implied that if society collapsed, he would be an armed looter taking what he wanted by force, and other threatening things.

      And again, I don't see how this answers my question. Are you saying the law is just after all and this "crazy guy" should rightly be put behind bars?


      The law is unjust, it is not agreeable, but he had plenty of options to follow the law as it is written, he failed to do so, and put his crimes on a public website for anyone doing a simple Google search could find.

      This all strikes me as - frankly - hypocritical on your part. Arguably that the whole point of gun control laws like this one is to stop crazy people like this getting access to weapons. For ages you've been all anti-gun-control and you somehow still claim that this is an "unjust law", but when faced with reality, clearly now you also see that the sane, rational thing is to not let potentially dangerous people get their hands on weapons.


      He put me in a Catch-22, if I am aware of a felony, legally I have to aid in reporting it (which I did) or directly report it, or else I can be charged with Conspiracy.

      Don't get me wrong - I think Naked Snake has done the right thing here. I just find his position on this to be hypocritical - to do the right thing and then somehow simultaneously claim that the law he used to do so is "unjust".


      If I didn't feel he was dangerous, I probably would not have reported him, I am not against his ownership of fully-automatic weapons and short-barreled rifles and shotguns, as well as handguns. I am, however, against a pretty clearly unstable individual having them. Most people are not dangerous and should be trusted with firearms. This person was not one of them.

      It goes without saying that you know my opinions on guns by now, but I don't quite understand your reasoning in this matter. Clearly you think it's an unjust law; why then go out of your way to see someone charged under it?

      What I mean is: if you had your way this law wouldn't exist. Therefore either your beliefs make no sense (ie. the law actually serves a useful purpose by stopping "crazy guys" getting their hands on dangerous weapons), or your actions make no sense (ie. it was fine for him to have the guns and he shouldn't be punished for it). But perhaps there's another explanation I've missed?

      You say that you "believe that ignoring unjust laws is not a moral way to protest them". Fair enough - violating the law, even if it's unjust, is at the very least probably a foolish course of action. But if the law is unjust, then surely the implication is that it is unjust for someone to be punished under it. I don't get why you'd go out of your way to see someone prosecuted under a law you believe to be unjust?

      Illegal throughout the US or just certain states like NY? Just curious.

      Anyway, I think you made the right choice. Even if this guy and his dad just happened to be gun nuts of the non-dangerous variety it's better to be safe than sorry I guess. Obviously the disturbing comments you speak of raised red flags.


      In NY it is entirely illegal. In other states (a majority of them), the only requirement is that you fill out a form and submit it to the BATFE along with a $200 payment for a "tax stamp". You are then processed and given your tax stamp, allowing you to make or possess the item (in this case a short-barrel shotgun which means that it has a barrel under 18 inches).

      Maes

      Meanwhile, in another forum, somebody is writing "I know a guy who ratted out one of my homies. I know where he lives." in a thread named "Snitches get stitches".


      Well, unlike him, I have not been disarmed, as my firearms are entirely legal, so I do not feel too worried ;-P

      Besides, he has no idea who turned him in.

  16. I was at a nearby gun shop to pick up some ammo for my AR-15 when I noticed a sporterized Carcano (modified for hunting as opposed to the original military configuration). The Carcano is an Italian-designed bolt-action rifle, most infamous as being the type of weapon used to strike down JFK, and this tragic incident apparently gave it an undeserved reputation as "cheap Wop junk" (excuse the slur). Well, as a result, most sitting in gun shops are marked for low prices and sold as unshootable due to rumors that they are unsafe (they aren't) or are generally poor quality in general (they aren't).

    This particular example is somewhat uncommon. It is a Model 38 in 7.35x51 Carcano, a cartridge intended to replace the 6.5x52 Carcano (they share the same case, 7.35 is merely modified to accept the larger diameter projectile). It was manufactured by an Italian state-run arsenal known as Terni in 1939, the first year of a production run of only 2 years (1939-1940). After 1940, they decided to re-adopt 6.5 due to supply issues. Thus, they stopped making Model 38s and started making them in that pattern, yet in 6.5, calling it the 91/38. A lot of 7.35 Model 38s were given to Finland as aid against the Russians, which probably confused the hell out of the Finns. "What do we do with this rifle that shoots ammo we don't use?" so they just ended up giving them to people who MIGHT NEED a rifle as opposed to ABSOLUTELY NEEDED one.

    I figured it would be a neat piece to hang on my ammo cabinet, so I asked the guy if he would take $50 for it instead of $75, he did, so after filling out Form 4473 and getting a NICS instant backround check run on me, I walked away with it in about 5 minutes.

  18. Yesterday my uncle stopped by to work on his car. While we were working, I noticed my grandpa's old .22 in his trunk. I commented on it and picked it up and he was like "oh yeah, you can have that, I don't really do anything with it anyway and I can't take care of it". I was pretty happy, I wanted it but I didn't want to bring it up. My uncle had sanded the stock down ages ago but never refinished it, so my buddy grabbed some stain and polyeurethene and refinished it. I got the metal cleaned up as best I could, looks a lot better. Now all it needs is a magazine.



    It is a Mossberg 350KA, made in the late 1950s until the middle of the 1980s. It's pretty over-engineered for a .22, built way tougher than it'd ever need to be.



    My AR-15 upper receiver arrived today, it is a Del-Ton A3 with M4 feed ramps, 16" chrome-lined barrel, mid-length gas system. Pinned and welded (fucking NY) Yankee Hill Machine muzzle brake with "agressive end". The carrying handle is from DPMS. The lower receiver is Aero Precision, the lower receiver parts kit I used was from DPMS and the A2 stock assembly (stock, tube, buffer) is from Model 1 Sales. It seems like it will be a really fun gun.



    And it continues to grow ;-P

  22. After ten years of waiting for him (roughly since this post, or when Lüt told me Static-X were a lousy SYL ripoff) to come to Portugal, a couple of months ago it was announced that the DTP was replacing Nevermore at the Vagos Open Air festival - this Saturday. Venue's 10 km from my mom's, no less.

    Hope to bring back photos!

      Heh, deadnail got me hooked on him as well, when he sent me a hard drive with Devy's entire discography on it (along with a lot of other stuff). I had heard some years ago and wasn't impressed, but I gave him a second shot, and soon got hooked on Terria and Ziltoid, listening to them on repeat for hours at a time.


      I hated Ziltoid, the only track I liked was Hyperdrive, and I prefer the Addicted remake to that version. Addicted is, IMO, his best album. I don't really like the SYLish type shit he does, I think the hardest track I like of his is Depth Charge, it's a bit more bombastic than I generally prefer, but for some reason I just really dig the hell out of that track.

  23. On July 31st, I turned a quarter of a century old. Go me! As a sign of my decrepitness, I spent most of the day sleeping after I got home from work in the afternoon.

    My mom decided to take me shopping for clothes for my birthday, so I got three pairs of shorts and two shirts, which is all I really needed. I thought XL would be right for me but these things are fucking tents on me, but since I work in a restaurant, I don't mind. Loose-fitting clothing can be the difference between burned skin or not.

    A friend of mine got an old wood gun cabinet for me from some guy he knows, it could only hold 5 guns and had really, really tiny shelves, about a little bigger than a shotgun shell box. Needless to say, I had no use for a wooden gun cabinet when I have a metal one. However, the size and double-sided set-up were perfect to unclutter my room. After knocking all the old shelves out with a hammer and pulling the nails out of the thing, which took forever, my friend hooked me up with some old spare 2x8 boards he had. We cut them to length and then cut about a blade's worth off one pair for each shelf so it would fit. The left hand (with your back to it) top side actually has a shim using a smaller scrap piece off the end of one of the boards and a part of the old shelf (waste not, want not, right?) Another spare piece was used to make the divider on the right hand side.

    I found an OLD carving of my name from when I was like, 10, so I put it on the door. My brother bought me that Winchester plate a long time ago but I never really had a place to put it until now. I also put up a Mustang logo (says 239) with some of the small brass hangers that were in the cabinet. The shotgun and pouch belt is hanging on a stronger hanger than was also inside it.





    And a "War Room" pic just for the hell of it :-P

      Grats on the level up. 25 is about when it all gets fuzzy. You can't remember what year anything happened in anymore and sometimes you can't even remember your age. :P


      That happens to me for a few months after every birthday, I always forget that I aged so I always say I'm a year younger than I am :-P
